Licking could just be for affection, I've had sun conures lick me tons and not want to be away from me, you could try giving her extra vitamins and minerals etc if that is what you feel may work best.
Her plucking may be due hormones, it depends, is she housed in a big enough cage etc? And if you believe you're making her want to mate more then remove any nest like things from cages eg, snuggle hut things
Other than that, welcome to the forum!
